Still life of Citrus Fruit, Foiled Limes Too, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Foiled Limes Too, 10x10 oil on canvas

Tin-foil just might become my second name!  Its reflective surface calls out to me from the kitchen as I work upstairs in my studio... tempting me to go down stairs, open the cupboard and look longingly at the huge ( Costco size) box of foil stored on the shelf.  Like that commercial on TV, where the box of donuts is calling out to the woman at her desk to come and consume one, or two... our roll of tin-foil is always on my mind.  The way it shimmers and shines as it catches the light entices my 'inner crow' to come out and play. 
Unlike donuts, tin-foil is calorie free... but I wouldn't recommend eating it!
